It was a cold start, but temperatures are warming quickly into the low-mid 60s for the afternoon hours. We’ll see plenty of sunshine through the day as high pressure is in control over the region & dry conditions will last through the end of our MLK Day.

Clouds will start to pick up into Tuesday as a front moves over the region, stalling out over our northern counties. This will create quite a range in conditions across the area tomorrow! If you live north of I-20, anticipate cooler temperatures and the likelihood of rain. Those of us along I-20 will see plenty of clouds, a few showers, & temperatures near 60°. South of I-20? Even warmer & drier conditions!

We’ll dry out into Wednesday, but clouds will linger ahead of our next slow-moving system. This will bring waves of rain to the region Thursday & Friday. Fortunately, this weekend is looking dry for now, but another system will move through Monday-Tuesday that could even bring the potential for some gusty storms. We’ll be watching those storm chances closely!
